A selection of diamond rings led the sale, with additional diamond lots also drawing active biding. Property from the collection of an elegant lady from Palm Beach, Florida; the collection of Mrs. A. Edward Allinson of Palm Beach, Florida and the Hirschfield estate of Santa Barbara, California, brought excellent results.
